How long does heavy cream stay fresh?

mctoft | Mar 8, 201006:07 AM     33

Hi, I have some heavy whipping cream in my fridge, two cartons. Both have been opened. Both are expired (one a month ago, the other 2.5 months ago). But they smell fine! And I tasted the oldest one; it seems fine.

Can I still use these? Should I be concerned about lysteria? I would be using a quarter cup in a pot of soup...

Please advise.

Thanks!
